In a nutshell:
The majority of us -- C-suite executives, mid-level people leaders, and
individual contributors -- are interacting with emotional BLIND SPOTS!
We tell ourselves that we're making "professional decisions," when really,
our choices and behaviors at work are often fueled by personal emotional
reactions that we're entirely unaware of - OR - don't feel comfortable admitting.
Our blind spots crash into other people's blind spots = CONFLICT.
Because most of us lack a solid foundation of Social & Emotional Intelligence, we spend our time
talking about everything but the REAL ISSUE.
As such, conflict and misunderstanding flare up over ... and over ... and over again.
It's time to start talking about what's really going on.
It's time for ALL of us to gain a better, more effective understanding of:
how the human brain is wired
why emotional reactions flare up in the first place
how to identify and defuse our OWN blind spots (and other people's)
how to transform knee-jerk emotional reactions into intelligent, positive, effective responses
how to humanize our interactions and forge new pathways to personal and professional success
I'm a speaker and coach with a passion for positive human relationships.
I help forward-thinking companies (and people leaders) increase social and emotional intelligence, humanize their interactions, and communicate and connect better.
For more than 20 years, I've shared powerful, perspective-shifting insights and smart, actionable solutions with organizations, leaders, and teams in the tech, manufacturing, nonprofit, and higher education sectors.
I also help purpose-driven professionals speak up, stand out, and share their bright ideas with the world.
I've delivered talks and workshops at:

“Cris Gladly and her Emotional Intelligence workshop are amazing.
I walked away with more understanding and empathy for where others are coming from, important insights about how I currently interact, and strategies for being more effective in my communication.
What's different about Cris’s workshop, versus all the others I’ve attended, is that I actually remember and frequently use the skills I learned that day.
I can’t recommend the workshop or Cris enough.”
